Sketchie Free For All …




Hey everyone, what are you up to this evening?

I’ve just escaped up to the attic to have a little play with the next lot of LOTV Christmas stamps. The DT made some gorgeous cards using the first release which went on sale last Thursday and they’ve proved to be hugely popular. This next batch are super cute and I’m sat here waiting for inspiration to strike!




Thank you so much for all your comments about Jessica’s sick friend and even offers to help with fundraising, you are all really very kind

I will find out what the situation is with the wheelchair fund and let you know




Onto this week’s challenge at Papertake Weekly and as it’s the last one of the month there is a new sketch






We’re having another ...


Sketchie Free For All


…which means that this sketch is just an option and you can use any Papertake Weekly sketch that takes your fancy

It MUST be one of ours and to make life a bit easier we now have a sketches page at the top of the blog with a fair old few to choose from

Just add the number of the sketch you’ve chosen when you post your entry


As always you can resize, flip and rotate the elements - as long as you can still see the sketch it will be fine

As it’s the last challenge of the month we are sponsored by those fabulous Simon Says Stamp and the lucky winner will get a $20 voucher to spend in their store


I chose to stick with the new Sketch for my card and I’ve used Fairies in Stocking from Lili of the Valley

How adorable are these ‘lil cuties tucked up in their stocking with their pressies…



PTW 18 - Sketch 81




Here a list of everything I used;


LOTV Christmas Handwritten Phrases

Coredinations card

NitWit holly paper

Krafty Hands square doily

Crochet lace from LOTV

Ribbon and embellishments from the Ribbon Girl

Spellbinders large ovals

Stickles glitter glue

Poly chromos pencils






Hope you like it, have a lovely evening everyone
